Hector’s dolphins still headed for extinction

Saturday October 1, 2011, 8:05 am Unfortunately gill-netting and trawling are not the only causes for the demise of these creatures..Most government standards for dolphin safe tuna dictate that no dolphins can be killed or seriously injured in the process of fishing for tuna..Dolphins may be caught in nets..as long as they are not injured..Marine biologists argue that the trauma of being caught up in fishing nets constitutes an injury..but sadly.. federal governments apparently do not agree..Independent certifications are more rigorous..
